Don’t Miss Cavalia!

Don’t Miss Cavalia!

If you’ve ever seen a Cirque Du Soleil production, you know it’s mesmerizing.  Now, just add horses!  It’s a beautiful interaction of humans and horses performing acrobatics, agility and strength.

The show’s Program says it best:  “About 10 years ago, Normand Latourelle was working on a production in Quebec, and noticed the spectators’ fascination for horses.  This is when the idea of creating a show in which horses could express themselves on stage in all their beauty, their nobleness, their agility and their power, was born.  He started by studying the horse and the place he had occupied in the evolution of mankind.  He then traveled the world, in search of experts capable of associating their equestrian knowledge and experience with his technical and artistic knowledge of large scale productions.  The Cavalia project finally came to life after a fortunate encounter between Frederic Pignon, Magali Delgado and Normand Latourelle…  Cavalia explores the relationship between man and horse and combines acrobatic and equestrian disciplines, such as dressage at liberty, Haute Ecole and Trick Riding….”
